Burberry Primrose Hill Pink Lipstick
Burberry Primrose Hill Pink Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a brightened warm pink that borders on pink-coral. Make Up For Ever Folk is slightly more coral. MAC Watch Me Simmer is brighter, slightly less pink. NYX Haute Melon is a bit more orange but has a similar look. Guerlain Nahema is much more coral. MAC Ultra Darling is slightly redder. This kind of shade is flattering on both warmer and cooler skin tones, because it doesn’t have a lot of orange or coral in it.
Burberry’s Lip Cover formula is supposed to be hydrating, yield full color coverage, and feel lightweight against the lip. It’s lovely during application–soft, smooth, which enables it to glide on effortlessly without pulling or tugging at the lips. It also is able to deliver nearly opaque color coverage in a single pass; you don’t have to go back and forth with this shade. The creamy consistency is very lightweight, though, and it gives the finish a luminous quality that makes lips look fuller. I love how hydrating the formula is–my lips always feel good even after this has worn off four hours or so later.
